Peter Hook and the Light to perform ‘Substance’ by Joy Division & New Order in Australia

Released in 1987, New Order’s ‘Substance’ was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became Factory Records’ 200th release and remains the best-selling New Order album.

Running from “Ceremony” in 1981 up to “True Faith” in 1987 the set takes in the high points of New Order’s catalogue, including “Blue Monday”, “Bizarre Love Triangle”, “Temptation”, “True Faith”, “The Perfect Kiss” to name a few

Released in 1988, Joy Division’s ‘Substance’ features all the singles that didn’t appear on the Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer, such as “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, “Transmission”, and “Atmosphere”. Plus their b-sides, tracks from their EP ‘An Ideal For Living’ and a Factory Records sampler.

Factory Records’ 250th release, it begins with ‘’Warsaw’’ and takes in the development of the band through “Digital” and ‘’Dead Souls’’ to the band’s final tracks.

Since debuting with the Unknown Pleasures Tour in Australia in 2010, Peter Hook & The Light have since toured the globe including a return back Down Under in 2015 with the Low Life & Brotherhood Tour. This return in 2017 will be the most total appreciation to date of the Joy Divison and New Order catalogue.
